This tea is selected from the Guangxi Bai Hao species, and has undergone a series of traditional processes. Generally these processes are identical to those used with other types of black tea, though an extra step is added to roll the leaves into their characteristic snail shape.

When brewed with hot near-boiling water, the rich, fruity nectar aroma of this tea is the first thing to unfold to your senses, with the tea liquid brewing a beautiful bright orange. This black tea is excellent on its own or mixed with milk, and is a great choice for an early afternoon drink.

Tea Garden

The Yaming Bai Hao tea garden covers a total area of around 1,000 mu of mountainous terrain between 500 and 1200m above sea level. This garden is fully surrounded by woods, and clouds and mist often shroud it throughout dawn and night, helping to prevent the harmful effects of UV rays on the tea plants growing here. To further ensure quality, chemical pesticides and fertilizers are strictly forbidden; the tea garden earned its organic authorization in 2015.

Origin

While China is the hometown of tea production in general, Guangxi is the birthplace of Bai Hao tea itself. The trees here are commonly grown at altitudes between 800 and 1500m, receiving an average precipitation of 1500-2000mm per year and with an average yearly temperature of 16-23℃.

Tea Bush

It is said that the Bai Hao variety is the only tea species versatile enough to be used as base material for all of the six basic types of tea: green, white, black, yellow, oolong, and pu-erh. It is a large-leaf species with elastic yellowish-green leaves containing an abundance of important compounds: one test shows that the leaves contain 3.36% amino acids, 35.6% polyphenols, 4.91% caffeine, and 182.92 mg/g of catechinic acid.

In 1964 a large number of these trees were found growing wild in Lingyun County, Guangxi, with the largest among them measured at nearly ten meters in height with a trunk 25cm wide.
